    Desktop background is not syncing in Windows 10


    HI all


    I login to one of my laptops. Change desktop background to a locally held picture. I would expect that background to be replicated across to my other laptop but it does not do so.


    I have tried toggling settings on and off but still does not work.


    I did try the suggestions in this post - https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/all/desktop-background-wont-sync/3de68836-d163-475f-b5a7-8493e7c5c552#:~:text=For%20the%20syn%20settings%20to,settings%20on%20Windows%2010%20devices.


    Is there anything else I can check?


    Any suggestions anybody?


    Thanks

    :)

    Lost desktop background

    I did a Search & Distroy spyware scan the other day, and one of the suggested "fixes" said something about removing Active Desktop. Like the muppet I am I clicked yes and am now without a desktop background picture.

    Does anyone have an idea how to reverse this? If I try to select a picture it's simply not added as a background.

    Desktop background is not syncing in Windows 10

    Lost desktop background

    The thing is I have no spyware; I've done scans with different pieces of software and they all confirm this. The active desktop bit that was removed by Search & Destroy is, I think, a pure Windows thing and I've seen it being listed in Search & Destroy scans on both this and other PCs before.

    The thing is that this time I was trying to be clever and pressed "delete" whereas before I just ignored it. I've undone the Active Desktop removal in Search & Destroy and also followed your tips above but it makes no difference - still no desktop background. Any other ideas or do I just wait until the next reformat?
